The compare lists all inherited roles and displays the comparison. We also have a provision to export the comparison to an excel output.

Send Password Lifecycle Notifications to Personal Email Address for Pending and Terminated Workers

Notifications that are a part of password lifecycle process will be sent to the personal email address of the user if the user’s profile is in pending or terminated status. These notifications are related to the following events:

  • Forgot user name
  • New user created
  • Password expired
  • Password expiry warning
  • Password generated
  • Password reset confirmation
  • Password reset

This was one of the major feature that customers were waiting on as they weren’t able to send the welcome notification to pending workers as they don’t have the work email till they get converted to employee and pending workers had to access the system in order to complete pre-onboarding activities. Clients used to create custom integrations in order to handle this scenario, which is no more required now with oracle introducing this feature of personal email notification.

We need to add the Profile option if it’s not available and should be enabled/updatable at site level as per the below snapshot
